@ THE SOCIAL.
STENOSGADE 1. COPENHAGEN V.
A new photographic project by Juan Hein will open at FotoGalería from Teatro San Martin, Buenos Aires, Argentina, from Tuesday 5 March to Sunday 5 May. The exhibition is curated by Juan Travnik.
"UNG" is the first essay presented by the Argentinian photographer Juan Hein after settling in Denmark seven years ago. His work develops a closeness to the characters participating in the Roskilde Festival, one the most important rock festivals in Europe ... In the first area of the exhibition we are confronted by black and white images that work in an allegoric manner. Somehow, Hein urges the spectator to think that they are in front of images from an uncertain past, with a certain bucolic atmosphere. The second area is very different. Through colour images made with a descriptive restlessness, the series gains a more actual visual profile, exploring through the documentation of sceneries, anecdotes and portraits, the behaviour of an heterogeneous audience.
In "UNG" ("young", in Danish), the large colour photographs, have not just the descriptive mood as mentioned before, but also the personal mark as an author. Through his approach to this theme, Hein tries to show rebellion as alienation; the taste for the excesses and, at the same time, the boringness that marks a stage in life usually characterised by the transition and the search for the boundaries. An age where the personal identity is consolidated."
